The NYSE publishes two lists of issues pending delisting from the Exchange:
An issue is added to this list upon the Exchange's filing of a Form 25 with the SEC and remains posted until the application to delist the issue becomes effective with the SEC (generally 10 days).
An issue is added to this list one business day after the exchange is notified of the issuer's intent to voluntarily withdraw its listing by filing a Form 25 with the SEC, and remains posted until the issuer's application to delist becomes effective with the SEC.
By virtue of a Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) order in January 1998 that designates NYSE Arca Tier I listed securities as covered securities for the purposes of Section 18(a) of the Securities Act of 1933, Tier I listings are afforded Blue Sky exemption from state securities laws in all 50 states (SEC Release No. 3-7494, January 2, 1998). Under the SEC's order, Section 18(a) preempts any state registration and fee requirements that would otherwise apply to Tier I listings. Tier II listings are afforded for issuer and non-issuer exemptions in the following states and jurisdictions except where noted below.
|State||Tier I||Tier II|
- Non-issuer exemption only
- Issuer transactions may be subject to notice filing requirements
- Issuer securities described as small cap or emerging companies shall not be exempt under this exemption
